Assertive Family Solutions - Understanding Parenthood and Children Parenting
About Us : What we offer and why.
Parenting Classes

Being a parent is the most important job we will ever have,it impacts us and our children for their entire live span, just like we were impacted  by our parents.
Important as it is there's not one single school or university that teaches how to be a good parent, before we become one.
 We learn as we go, or the way we were parented . Sometimes we like it, and want to do the same, sometimes we don't and want to do something different. Sometimes we didn't have the luck to have a parent by our side as we grew, or just had one parent.
When we decide to form a family, we might come from different backgrounds or different ways of being parented, and we might have different ways and ideas and we find ourselves encountering  bumps on the road.
That's why our services can help you and your family overcome these differences and come together to an agreement .
Every individual and  family is different and unique, and has it's own personality, rhythm, values and beliefs; there's not one single system of parenting that will fit all, so that's why we listen to you, observe your interactions , we assess and give you feedback about what we think might be helpful for you.
We are located in San Diego California.

Grandfamilies Support Groups

  • There are 24,000 Grandparents and kinship raising children in San Diego County at present time(Data from the County Board of Supervisors, expressed by Supervisor Greg Cox, District 1, on January 2015).
  • They came to be in this position overnight, usually by tragic circumstances in the life of their grandchildren's parents, that would not allow them to look after them, like Jail, Substance abuse, Alcohol abuse, Domestic Violence , death etc.
  • The alternatives for these children if they don't have grandparents or Kinship to take care of them would be the Foster System. 
  • These groups are free , we currently meet the Second (Spanish speaking Group)and Third Tuesday(English Speaking Group) of each month from 4 to 5.30 at the MountainView/ Beckwourth, City Library Branch.
  • This is a safe space to share and explore the resources that the community in general offers .
  • We offer speakers for the topics the grandparents or kinship have expressed the need to hear.
  • The children are welcomed , they will have supervised homework, Arts and Crafts and the usage of Computers.
  • January 19th of this year 2017 marked the first anniversary of the groups meeting. We celebrated together at the Mountain View/Beckwourth Library Branch.
